Just finished your exams and looking for a great place to work?
Join the cloud team at Hindsight Software and help build tools for the development teams at Spotify, ASOS, Starbucks, NewBalance, and over 400 other companies. As a small technology company with a start-up culture you’ll get to work with cutting edge technologies, have a variety of career opportunities and be part of a development team that is doubling in size every 18 months.
Job title: Junior Software Developer (Graduate programme)
Salary: £28,000 to £30,000
Location: Epsom, Surrey (UK)
Highlights: Mental health assistance programme, relocation loan, and travel opportunities
This role is ideal for someone who is passionate about software development, and wants to write quality code. Our stack of AWS, NodeJS, Typescript, MongoDB, React and Redux provides a variety of learning opportunities and challenges, while being backed with mentoring from senior staff. Day to day work will involve developing new product features, maintaining existing features, deploying them to production and helping customers adopt them.
All staff have the opportunity to travel both nationally and internationally for conferences, training courses, and “App Weeks” with our partner Atlassian. Recent travel opportunities have included Las Vegas, Berlin, San Diego, Austin, Washington DC, and Barcelona.
A core company value at Hindsight is 'Work as a team, with balance and no ego,' this means we take people's well-being seriously. Unlike many large corporates and unicorn-startups we don’t expect people to work overtime every day, in fact, overtime rarely occurs at all. Our commitment to support you goes further, and while we hope you don’t have to use it, everyone has access to a Mental Health assistance service with mental health first aiders on site.
Long, tedious commutes do not provide the basis for a good work/life balance, this is why we have chosen to base our office in Epsom, Surrey rather than London. This locality provides good travel links to London, for those who want to access city life, and the beautiful Surrey Hills is on our doorstep for those who have an outdoors mindset. Accommodation in the area is affordable, with student and young professional options being readily available due to the local college, hospital and University of Creative Arts. Moving can be a daunting prospect, so following our value of 'do the right thing' we provide a moving loan to help with a deposit or moving costs.
We are interested in people who can work as part of team, interact with customers and bring value to our team, but don’t want to coast through life. At Hindsight, we strongly believe in work-life balance, therefore we are looking for someone who can switch-off at the end of the working day .
How to apply
If you would like to join our team, please send your CV and a covering letter to Alan Parkinson. Since CVs can be a little boring (especially if we’re reading lots of them!), please use the letter as your opportunity to stand out from the rest and tell us why you’re the best person to join our team in this role. We feel academic results aren’t a good indicator for ability; so we want to hear about your final year project, and what drives your passion for software development when you apply for this role.
We don’t have a lengthy, multi-stage selection process. We will select interesting candidates as applications are received and arrange coffee or a video call as the initial step. This would be followed by a on-site interview where you can meet the team and work on a technical exercise. Interviewing is a two-way process, and we welcome candidates to question us so they can work out the suitability of Hindsight as an employer and more importantly the role.
Notes: We can only expect applicants who already have the right to work in the UK.
